I'm psyched!

Life is good....Dennis is sitting in a wheel chair.  So good to see him sitting up and smiling.  He is so strong willed.  We are so proud!
As you all know, we lost out truck im December of 2016.  At that point we decided to give up camping and bought a car instead of a new truck.  We put the 5th wheel up for sale and that didn't work.  Now, 5 months later, we decided to become seasonal campers again.  We will be at Timberline Lake Campground in New Gretna.  We are looking forward to being there and can't wait.  Dennis found someone that will pull our 5th wheel there on June 2nd.  Can't wait!

Mother's Day

We went to the Elks for brunch.  It was excellent!  After that, the whole family went to see Dennis.  He is doing great.  His willpower and spirits are awesome and that, combined with the love of his family, he'll be home in no time.

Being grateful

Is there such a thing as the worst day of your life?  I guess you won't know until the end.....
I had about three so far...at least that what one thinks at the time it happens.  My parent's passing, and on May 1st 2017 the motor cycle accident that Dennis had.  Here is what happened:
Dennis was on his motor cycle driving straight on Rt. 166 and and a woman made a left turn and t-boned him.  
He has spine injuries and lost his left foot up to the knee, a few broken ribs and a fractured sacrum.
I am grateful that he is alive and on the road to recovery and hopefully soon, he'll be able to come home to his wife and children.
Today is Mother's Day and I am spending the day with the family at the rehab center.  I am not sad anymore....I am happy that I have two loving children.

Easter

Happy Easter to all! 
We had a great time, as always when we are together with family.  We went outside after great. dinner and sat by the fire.  85 degrees outside, but it doesn't matter, because a fire is always no matter how hot it is. :-)

Spring arrived!

Another gorgeous day!  We decided that is was much too nice to sit inside and took a ride to Smithville.  I guess we weren't the only ones that didn't feel like being home.  The parking lots were pretty full.  Everyone was out to enjoy the sun.

Back home

We are back home and at this point nothing new to tell.  The drive home was smooth.  Laundry and shopping and back to the normal routine.  Kia is happy to be home as well!

A day at the outlets

Friday we did a lot of joy riding....just looking...it was nice.  One Saturday we wanted to go to this huge farmers/flea market, just to find out that no dogs are allowed.  So we drove all the way to Lakeland and then some.  I didn't take pictures, just enjoyed the area and the sun.
Today we decided to visit the outlet.  It was a pretty big mall and we enjoyed walking around.  Kia was in the stroller the whole time and she loved it.  Dinner at the food court.  We ate outside and it was actually pretty good.  Stromboli, salad and a Pepsi.
On the road  we saw an air boat and a truck with a huge lift.

St. Armonds - Sarasota

86 degrees!  That was on the way to Sarasota.  It later climbed up to 89 later.  We walked the whole circle.  What a different clientele.  Also nice it to be able to window shop.  Gorgeous clothes on the mannequins in the windows.  Some very high in price, some mid-range.  All in all...just beautiful.  Every restaurant has outside tables and most of them taken. I couldn't resist and had an ice cream cone from Kilwins.  Absolutely the best!  Maybe even better than Cold Stone's.
